Will centos7 follow up on rhel7's 4-year expansion support

I see that rhel7 will provide four-year extension support after June. Will the centos7 project continue to be followed up and maintained?https://access.redhat.com/articles/7005471

No. It's not possibe to do so as RH do not publish the source for EUS subscription packages. To use those you need to have a license for RHEL and an EUS subscription. Since the source is not released, it's not possible to rebuild for CentOS. This has always been the case - RH always offer an EUS service for EOL versions.
The future appears to be RHEL or Debian. I think I'm going Debian.

CentOS 5 and 6 are deadest, do not use them.
